We just wrapped up our 16th annual Adagio Opportunity Conference. This year’s event was held at the Westin Bayshore Hotel, on Vancouver’s spectacular downtown waterfront. We broke another attendance record this year. Our attendance was up 9% over last year’s numbers.
There were numerous highlights. Our keynote this year was Ward Blatch of K2 Enterprises. He reviewed Microsoft Windows 10 in terms of features that accounting departments will appreciate. Ward also shared his insights into data security, and covered his list of potential threats to company data. He indicated the simple things we should all be doing to protect ourselves more effectively. Al Hahn, executive director at the Association of Support Professionals, gave a couple of presentations to our Adagio consultants on best practices in design of support plans and management of customer relationships. We showed our new Adagio Cloud product with Adagio Manager, an application that lets you decide when upgrades should be installed (a feature that particularly excited Ward). As usual, we delivered lots of instructional content to help clients become more productive and proficient in Adagio. There was time for some relaxed networking, with a glorious evening cruise around Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet and False Creek – with picture postcard views and perfect weather.
I would like to thank all of you that attended and participated in the conference. I hope you learned something new, met some interesting people, and enjoyed yourself at the conference. We look forward to seeing you all again at next year’s AOC.
